Shows off all the aromatics and flavors youd expect out of a 20 year old Bordeaux blend - cedar, sandalwood, dried cherries, cinnamon, clove, a whiff of vanilla... one could go on and on, but simply put, wines like this are exactly why people age wine. If you havent experienced this wine, you have no excuse!

"1999 was a phenomenal year for Renaissance. Great acidities and likable wines from the get go, with more precocious aromatic expansion than usual. Basically, what wine writers would call a great vintage for reds. An easy harvest for the winemaker." ~ Gideon Beinstock

Gideon Beinstock has become known for his amazing Clos Saron wines, however the history goes back much further than that. A long winding road from growing up in Israel, an artists life of painting in Paris, helping to plant the Renaissance Vineyards in the 1970s, international wine sales, and finally finding his way into winemaking at the very same vineyards he had planted almost two decades earlier. It was there at Renaissance that he began learning his craft and made the first of his incredible wines.

Gideon left in the late 1990s to found Clos Saron, just a few miles down the road, but has always felt a connection to Renaissance, both as a piece of his history, and also as a totally unique and special terroir.

Gideon has had the opportunity to reclaim some of the greatest wines he made during his time at Renaissance and we are lucky enough to have those wines to offer now. These wines have never left the winery and have been aging perfectly, undisturbed for the past two decades.

These wines were hand-picked by Gideon and are showing outstandingly right now, and should continue to age gracefully for years to come. It is a privilege to have these wines to offer you!
